We have 2 children in Ridgeview, in 4th and 5th grade. I realize writing this review is probably pointless. Due to slpit custody my son has kind of fallen through the cracks at Ridgeview. When he's at his mothers she doesn't take him to school, he has missed around 30 days unexcused and Ridgeview staff or his teacher has never said a word to me. It's like they don't even notice. Our daughter in 5th grade who is in my care full time is doing great, great teacher, a+ student... But I wonder if she wasn't would she be noticed?
My rating i for the principal only, not the school. I was a parent of a student at one time. My son had some great teachers Tubbs, Farr, and Stein especially. I believe they now have the asst. principal from Thurston JH as the principal. Even though this took place more than 10 years ago it makes me mad every time I think of it. My sons first day at junior high, 6th grade and that asst. principal made the comment directly to me that I shouldn't walk my son to his first class!! There were plenty of parents walking their kids to their classes. From grade school 5th grade to junior high 6th grade for crying out loud!! These are kids 10 and 11 years old. I will forever think this guy is a putz.
